Thought this was interesting to hear from such a cocky player.

"We have the deepest bench in basketball. The Clippers might have something to say about that, but it's us in this locker room. Our mission every night is to go out and outwork and outscore every other bench."

To say "The Clippers might have something to say about that but it's us in this locker room" is him basically saying "but we can't admit that because I'm talking about our locker room". But regardless if he thinks the Clippers are almost as good or 2nd best it's good that other teams and players are noticing.

They have a very good bench but we are better in that area. We also have the better PG sorry Celtics Razz.

As far as experience goes, I think we have them beat. That said, Boston did pick up a couple of promising young talents from the draft. Right now I feel Boston is just trying to set the table for the future, but Doc is so creative with his schemes that he might have a formula that will benefit the older guys on their roster.

The only positions the Celtics beat us at are SF, C and obviously Doc. Our bench is better but I really like Jeff Green and think him and Terry have a shot at 6MOY.

Yeah it's interesting that a Boston Celtics player gives us more props than our "hall mates" at least we're getting some respect.

Boston player doing it because they have a historically hated rivalry with our "hall mates", lol. They like to do or say anything that pisses them off, even when its true.

Repped High Quality Post

Don't forget, the Clippers and Celtics have ties ever since the Braves moved from Buffalo.

^ very true. I will try to rep you on my phone! But the Celtics were bought by a former part owner of the Buffalo Braves (who happened to be Armenian). At the time it was the right move as they went on to pick up Bird and friends and mass a whole Lotta success. But at this point in time, I like our squad over theirs.

Still got love for our former Clips: Wilcox and Dooling! Two of my face Clips... Also got love for KG and Rondo.

henry mangurian was co owner with john brown. so yeah, he was armenian. "In 1977, Mangurian became a partner in the Buffalo Braves of the National Basketball Association (NBA). At the end of the 1978 season he and his partner John Y. Brown, Jr., negotiated a franchise swap of the Braves team for the Boston Celtics. After one season, Mangurian bought out Brown and as the franchise's owner saw the Celtics sign stars Larry Bird, Kevin McHale, and Robert Parish. In the 1980-81 Boston Celtics season, his team won the NBA Championship". got this online.

I knew Bledsoe was good, I knew Crawford was good, and I know Lamar Odom is good (or at least can be)..... Hollands has impressed me. He's had 1 bad game and I threw him down pretty hard.... But lately he has been a very good backup center. Another person that has impressed me is Matt Barnes... very happy we picked him up. I see him getting a lot of PT and possibly fighting his other 2 teammates for 6th man of the year.
